R&R Legislative Update

Release and Restitution for Chimpanzees in U.S. Laboratories

Legislative Update 3/30/2009

Keeping a strong and steady pace since its introduction in early March, the Great Ape Protection Act (H.R. 1326) has, of as today, the support of 45 cosponsors. The bill is currently in the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.
Project R&R thanks all our supporters who contacted their legislators. YOUR outreach has led to this ever-growing bi-partisan list of sponsors so critical to help ensure the bill’s success.

» If your legislator is not signed on, ask them to cosponsor the Great Ape Protection Act (H.R. 1326.)
» If they are a 2009 cosponsor, please thank them.

» Finally, email the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Let them know you no longer want your tax dollars going towards research on great apes. Tell them you want NIH:
To retire all government owned/supported chimpanzees currently in U.S. labs to sanctuary; and,
To reallocate funding for alternatives, which are more humane, safer and better science.
